##vbScript - Get Drive Letter by Volume Label Please see my post [vbScript - The Basics](https://www.daniweb.com/programming/threads/516400/vbscript-the-basics) for more details on vbScript. I have all my computers partitioned with two partitions. The drive letters are C (OS and applications) and D (user data). I use Macrium Reflect to take monthly full and daily differential images of C. To backup D Ii use a script front end for robocopy. Using a script to do the backup has one major problem. The drive letter of my dedicated backup external drive may change. I find that even if I have used Drive Manager to …

I swapped out my HDD for an SSD in my Win 8.1 Lenovo Y480, replacing the HDD in the optical drive slot using an [HDD Caddy](http://hddcaddy.eu/). The system runs fine. I still see the original copy of the Windows System disk that sits on the HDD in Windows listed as drive I:, in addition to the cloned C: drive which is booting from the SSD. I haven't deleted the old copy of the System Drive from the HDD yet, in case of errors &c. as I'm still trying the system. However, when I plug in external USB HDDs now, none …

The error is `"The Disk is Write Protected"`, I don't Know why this all happens? I try to repair it with the google help and find some common solution and tried too But I failed (i.e. that's don't work for me) My Work (My trials) Regarding the hotfix, I think you can install it directly.

Hitachi has now announced a 1-terabyte internal hard drive, claiming they're the first to unveil a 1 terabyte hard drive in the industry. It doesn't sound terribly impressive, given the fact that storage mediums are increasing faster than you can blink an eye. However, they have done quite a feat if you look more closely. For one, the pricing is [I]very[/I] attractive. This hard drive costs a mere $399, cheaper than a lot of smaller-capicitated portable hard drives. This makes it quite inexpensive to get the huge amounts of storage, which will especially attract server-storage people. Secondly, they have made …

I've had my external HD for a while now (Rock mobile disk). Last time I tried to access the data in it was a few months ago without issues. I tried using it yesterday and started to have issues. I have 600GB of data that needless to, is very valuable. It doesn't matter what machine I plug the laptop to (Vista, 7 or 8.1) I have a hard time getting them to read the HD. Once it finally decided to show up, I cannot do anything with the files. What I have done: [\*] Uninstalled drivers [\*] Ran windows Fix …

I had a trusty external hard drive for many years, it was a 500gb Seagate which worked fine up until the other day when the internal port for the mini usb detatched from the board and I was left w/ no way to connect it to my laptop.. Seagate failed to help me at all and external sources directed me to get another enclosure for the hard drive which I finally found @ my local Staples here in town.. It is an I/O Magic 3.5" USB 2.0 Enclosure (Works w/ IDE & SATA) I thought I was saved..:D When I …

Lenovo Y480, Win 8.1. Last month a Malware Bytes update started cannibalizing my system, quarantining over 600 driver files, .dlls and assorted stuff. (Earlier part of that story [here](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/threads/481460/mbam-blocked-and-cant-scan-cant-upate-cant-install-it-again#). I tried to undo everything, and in the process uninstalled MBAM, thereby deleting the quarantined files. My system is full of holes, and won't do odd things, like recognise external USB hard drives or thumb drives. There are no system restore points prior to the problem. This is a problem for me, because my laptop came without a system restore disc. I took the precaution of making a system restore image …

The portable version of Python (versions 2.7 and 3.2 are available) can be run from your hard drive or a flash drive. In many ways this makes your live easier, since a lot of libraries are included already. Also, you can take your code to a friend on a flash drive and show it off. However, it is for Windows machines only! Portable Python 2.7.3.1 from: http://www.portablepython.com/wiki/PortablePython2.7.3.1 This package contains following applications/libraries: PyScripter v2.5.3 NymPy 1.6.1 SciPy 0.10.1 Matplotlib 1.1.0 PyWin32 216 Django 1.4 PIL 1.1.7 Py2Exe 0.6.9 wxPython 2.9.3.1 NetworkX 1.6 Lxml 2.3 PySerial 2.5 PyODBC 3.0.2 PyGame 1.9.1 …

I have been turning my USB thumb drives into fully encrypted data containers for years now, but readily admit that the prospect of rolling up your sleeves and getting down and dirty with encryption software is not as exciting to everyone as it is to me. However, with removable USB data storage devices having hit the pricing point where they have well and truly become commoditized and the data stored upon them of increasing value to those who would cause you financial injury, it really isn't safe to carry data around unencrypted; so what to do if DIY encryption isn't …

I had to map a network drive with specific credentials in my PHP script and it kept falling over because I'd already navigated to the drive in windows explorer. This snippet will unmap a network drive using COM regardless of whether or not there is a drive letter associated with it or not. I can call this bit of code before I attempt the mapping to make sure that the program doesn't fall over.

Hello everyone I am facing a problem that I have never encountered before and googling around just isn't helping. I was assigned to migrate a pmWiki server to a new MediaWiki server which was supposed to run as a virtual machine on a Red Hat Cluster Suite. My coworker and I had to copy paste almost 2000+ articles. During the migration my coworker decided to make a backup script with which he effectively deleted the libc library and many other important data. We copied the image of the Hard Drive in order to extract the database of our wiki but …

I had purchased a Netgear Stora for back up and after a year the fan went out so now the device won't start. I took out the HDD (Seagate 1TB 3") and purchased a Dynex enclosure so that I am able to access the disk. Win7 installs the driver and says it's ready for use but is not listed under my computer. I went to disk management to assign a drive letter and I don't have an option to do it. I see the drive but no letter and no option to assign, change, delete, format drive. I went to …

Hi, I am planning to build a budget gaming PC with the price limit of roughly £400. I have found a group of components that add up to make roughly £350 and I was wondering whether these components are worth there money, if it will be good enough to play games well on medium graphic settings and what needs upgrading for future proofing. The aim is to build a cheap PC and as o gain more money I can buy better components as the next gen comes out. Here are the components minus the PSU: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/western-digital-internal-hard-drive-wd10ezrx http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/patriot-memory-psd34g13332s http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-f2a85vpro http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-ad641xwngxbox http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx650e2gd5

Hello. I have just purchased a Lexar JumpDrive S50 32 gigs and I am having trouble accessing the USB. The USB shows up in the my computer window with a grayed out icon and when I double click it it states "Please insert a drive". The same statement is displayed when I try to format it. I am using a Windows 8 as my main computer, but I have tried it on a windows vista and windows 7. So far I have tried updating the drivers (through device manager and through Lexar's website). I have also reinstalled the usb drivers. …

Hello all, I have important files on my flash drive, and now i have discovered it is broken. I dont know what has caused it, and on none of the machines i've tested, did it show up at all. I'm guessing this means that the usb part of the device isnt connected to the chip of the device? I really need urgent help, i have a deadline of tomorrow for this stuff.. Thanks in advance

Hi I meet a problem I bought a **WD HDD** (WD2500AAKX) with **SATA3** connection but my **motherboard chipset** only supports **SATA1**. The question is: how to set **jumpers** and to slow down speed at 1.5 Gbps? On the HDD is saying that Jumper on Pin 5-6 slow down to 3 Gbps. When i connect the HDD, the BIOS doesn't see it. And all over the internet it saying that SATA3 is **compatible** with SATA1 chipset **thanks in advance** :)

[code] public static final String USERHOMEDIR = System.getProperty("user.home", "."); [/code] clearly this code will not be valid any more. Could this USERHOMEDIR be replaced correctly each time the jump drive is moved from one client to the next? again the main objective of the program would be to create dir's and place doc in a a file system on the jump drive and maintain access to those dir no matter where I use the …

Why would you set one hard drive as master and the other as slave? Is the hard drive a master by default? The master would plug into SATA0 and the slave in SATA1 on the motherboard, right? As an example
